Holiday Egg Nog Recipe Without  the Fat & High Calories

Written by Diet Bites

Two Recipes for Diet Eggnog: These wonderful nogs are just what Santa ordered!


This diet eggnog recipe is a full-bodied, rich tasting holiday treat and it's fast, easy and economical to prepare. Enjoy with elves and a polished set of jingle bells.

Recipe for the Best Diet Eggnog in the Village

Recipe Ingredient List
6 beaten large eggs - and ensure they are fresh
2 cups of reduced fat milk
1/3 cup of Splenda which measures like sugar, cup per cup
2 Tablespoons of light rum OR 1 teaspoon of rum extract
2 Tablespoons of bourbon (optional)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or imitation vanilla
ground nutmeg

How to Prepare This Eggnog Recipe

The classic flavors of traditional eggnog are of course nutmeg and cream. The base is eggs which contain quite a lot of cholesterol - so eggnog is one of those beverages that should be limited due to both cholesterol and caloric values. The cream also adds significant dietary fat to the recipe. Enjoy one serving and be done - or you may cry the next time that you weigh.

You'll need a very heavy, non-stick saucepan to prepare this recipe. Mix the eggs, reduced fat milk and Splenda in the pan and cook over medium heat while stirring. When the liquid is done, it will thicken and should cover a spoon with a thin coat.

Remove from the heat; you'll need to quickly cool the hot liquid. You can accomplish this task using a myriad of methods - such as placing the pan in a large bowl of crushed ice. Keep stirring the liquid for about 2-3 minutes then add the spirits and the vanilla extract. Dust with ground nutmeg or stir 1/2 teaspoon into the main recipe but take care not to over-do as too much can ruin the recipe and nutmeg can be toxic when consumed in large doses (generally 1 teaspoon or more can do ill harm).

Top with light, reduced fat whipped cream if you wish - or serve in a beautiful punchbowl for party time and top with the whipped cream.

This eggnog recipe makes ten generous servings for about 100 calories each.


Holiday Eggnog Tips

Around the holiday season there are many different varieties of holiday creamers found in the dairy section at your local market.

The low fat varieties, including the eggnog flavored ones contain from 25 to 35 calories per two Tablespoons. There are 16 Tablespoons in a cup so if we based the creamer on 25 calories per cup, then it will contain 200 calories. It we base it on 35 calories per cup, it will contain 280 calories.

For a very quick eggnog, you can use 1/2 cup of the flavored creamer to 1/2 cup of skim or reduced fat milk.

If your creamer contains 25 calories and the milk 90 per cup, then one cup of the eggnog recipe will contain about 145 calories. The milk dilutes the rich creamer to a very tasty, drinkable state. Sprinkle with a bit of ground nutmeg if you wish.

And this recipe will work for all of the different holiday flavored creamers such as pumpkin and peppermint.

Recipe for Diet Holiday Eggnog

Recipe Ingredient List
6 cups of skim or reduced fat milk

1 cup of Egg Beaters or your favorite comparable product
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract (Rub a little behind your ears and live a little!)
2 teaspoons of rum extract
Ground nutmeg and cinnamon (or you can use a bit of pumpkin pie spice)

Sweetener to taste (Use the pink stuff, the blue stuff, the yellow stuff AND if you use the real stuff, be sure and measure carefully and remember to count those added calories. Real sugar will blow up anyone except ants when used in high quantities as it contains close to 800 calories per cup. And those tiny spoons of sugar add up quickly in the area of caloric values.

Heat the reduced fat milk, Egg Beaters and sweetener in the microwave on high until thickened, stirring every minute or so. You can also use your stove if you prefer.

Remove from microwave or stovetop and stir in the remaining ingredients. Next, cover the mixture very tightly with plastic wrap and chill. Sprinkle with additional ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon if desired. You can even add a dollop of non fat, sugar free topping for an added treat to the eggnog.

This recipe for Holiday Egg Nog makes about six eight ounce servings for about 100 calories each. Be sure and leave some out for Santa along with your plate of holiday low fat cookies.

As he'll be making lots of stops on Christmas Eve, he'll appreciate this light, non-fattening treat. Who knows, he may even leave some very special in your stocking.
